Jan-13-07  Timothy Glenn Forney: I love the final position in this great game,what a classic attacking gem this is.
Jan-13-07  Karpova: A great game indeed! Black should have tried to develop his pieces. 7...Nc6 looks reasonable
11...Nc6 would have been possible, too
Jan-13-07  Timothy Glenn Forney: I agree 7...Nc6 was the move he missed.
May-16-08  addiction to chess: Brilliant!

  ChessHigherCat: Fantastic game but I think black would have been okay (or even better) if he had just castled on move 9.

As we say in the great big state of Texas, if my auntie had a compound tubuloalveolar exocrine gland, she'd be my uncle.

And if Black had castled on move 9 it would have been a totally different game.

  ChessHigherCat: <offramp> Yeah I know, Nekrasov donated his body to the noble cause of nekraphilia to our greater edification. It's one of those games where one player can spread his wings because the other bends over and spreads 'em.

17...Be6 18. Rxe6 fxe6 19. Bxe6+ Kf8 20. Ba3+ Ke8 21. Qe2 Qe5 22. Qxe5 Bxe5 23. Re1 Bxd4 24. Bc8+ Kf7 25. Bxb7 Nd7 26. Bxa8 Rxa8 27. Re7+ Kf6 28. Rxd7

That's assuming "the 2AM version of best play" and I don't know if white has anything if 19...Kh8

Jul-14-17  The Kings Domain: Poor black, simply no way out. Fun vintage charmer.
Jul-14-17  Ironmanth: Beautiful! Total control; what we all dream might happen a few times in our chess careers!

I have played many games with <total control>, normally with much weaker opponents.

I prefer the games where I overcome a similarly-rated opponent's counter-play.

  Check It Out: And to state the obvious, if 20...Qxc7 then 21.Rd8#

  kevin86: sharp game!
Jul-14-17  schnarre: ...Very sharp game, especially with White's Bishop pair well-poised!
Jul-14-17  ccolby: I think CheckItOut means 20...Qxf7. More interesting is 20 ... Qxc4. Then 21.Rd8 is not mate; it loses the rook at f7. 21.bxQ also loses that rook. White plays 21.Rg7 Kh8 22.Rd8+ Qg1 followed by # with either rook.
Premium Chessgames Member
  morfishine: The delightful aspect of this game is that <20...Qxc4> does not suffice


Premium Chessgames Member
  RandomVisitor: 14...Qd7 or 14...Nc6 seem to be better for black.
Jul-15-17  ndg2: What's "Nekrasov"'s first name?
Premium Chessgames Member
  morfishine: <ndg2: What's "Nekrasov"'s first name?> There's a modern internet search tool called 'Google'

  WorstPlayerEver: Really?! But you won't find his first name. Know-it-all.
